I’m looking ahead to lots of happenings for A Place of Her Own in the next few days.
Thursday evening I’m one of eight published authors from the Mid-Valley chapter of Willamette Writers selected to read at the Mid-Valley Author Celebration and Reading. That’s June 5 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Tsunami Books in Eugene at 2585 Willamette Street, and it’s open to the public. I’ll be reading a short segment from A Place of Her Own taken from the chapter, “The Oregon Trail,” describing the last mountain Martha had to cross on that rugged trek. After the readings, the eight authors will do signings. It should be a fun night.
I’ll return to Tsunami on the 21st for signing and reading on my own. More on that later.
Saturday afternoon is my book launch party in Roseburg at While Away Books, 932 W. Harvard Avenue, from 1 to 3. I’ll offer another selected reading then, something I haven’t presented before.
The photo above shows my book, front and center, when you walk in the door at While Away. Looking forward to the fun. 🙂
Then next week starts right off with an airing Monday of my short vignette from the book on Jefferson Public Radio’s “As It Was” program which highlights bits of local history. Click above on “Events” for details. They have a professional reader who does those. My story’s already submitted. Nothing for me to do now but listen and enjoy.
Which is good, because the same day, Monday at 10:45, I’ll be speaking about the book at my Roseburg writers group, An Association of Writers. Details on “Events” also. Fun, fun!
